My family and I have been eating this BBQ for over 10 years! It is a must not miss experience in Telluride, Colorado. Also, this is one of the best places to catch sporting events with a great crowd on many big screens. Happy eating!

Poor atmosphere combined with an undercooked (raw) hamburger equals a bad experience. Avoid this place!!

A relatively cheap option in Telluride Oak as Fat Ally is now called is great for a casual dinner or an apres drink and snack. With a cool set up and outdoor seating that is great during the spring, Oak/Fat Ally is worth a visit.

The Fat Alley BBQ was buzzing with people when we arrived during the film festival. We sat outside and enjoyed our meal. My husband had the full rack of ribs and they were very good. I had the 3 slider appetizer which was more than enough as a meal. Once our food was brought to us, no one came out... More

Ok, this is my first online review and you know it's bad if it prompted me to write a review. We came here after seeing it ranked as one of the top BBQ joints in the country. My brother in law and I love eating in KC at the different BBQ joints and were totally excited to try this out.... More

Really liked this for a reasonably priced, low-key dinner, and the atmosphere and food quality are very good. Nice place to get dinner on the off night where you don't want to spend big for a fancy sit down. Tasty BBQ!

The food was very good and the price wasn't bad considering the costs in town. The portions were big and the burgers are about an inch thick.
